One of my friends calls me a little strega. Her Italian grandmother was that way. I think that must be a peasant term though, because my son has a book that obviously takes place in Eastern Europe in which part of the title is that word, but I identify and look most like my Italian side. My friend, who is half Italian, means it like clairvoyance or what is called “being sensitive” by Proloux.
It isn’t just the whole thing with my ex who moved away, but it’s also that my recent ex emailed me yesterday. She emailed me when I was looking at the friend across the table from me and getting ready to tell her that because she was so close with her grandmother, she should be going to the event that I have two tickets for at the end of the month. The event involves flaky pursuits related to death. I didn’t tell her about my tickets, because we got busy with our kids. My ex emailed that she would keep her promise to me and would go. I think when I was ready to ask my friend, my ex emailed. I had intentionally left my phone in her car because I didn’t want to drag it around with me while we shopped and ate.
When you tell people that you are intuitive and that you know things, they look at you as if you’re a crackpot. Although I have to rely on empirical, and also short-term methods at work, I do feel and notice factors that others probably pay no attention to, and I can feel energy. The energy can be 50-miles away or six states away too.
The same friend, who I was with, who calls me strega, who has a kid eight-months older than mine said that when you are intimate with someone, some of her or him is always part of you. I certainly have felt deaths and other things from my exes. She is probably right. I didn’t tell her that my ex emailed, because I would have gotten an earful. I went back to our conversation and plans at the time. In fact, because she is the same friend whose ex husband has cancer, I always concentrate only on her when we are together, which is typically twice a month. When we left the store we were all shopping in, I told her that I had to tell her what I felt two-weeks ago. I told her the whole weird story about my ex who moved though, and she said, “I knew that you’d tell me something like that.”
It wound up that I couldn’t confirm plans with my ex for the event until really late last night. I was at my friend’s house after we shopped, and then I had to cook, walk our dog, eat, and play with my son as I promised this weekend. He didn’t get to bed until an hour-and-a-half past his bedtime. It would probably be nicer if I wasn’t so into good food. Most people micro cook whatever, and I know that days are longer because I do cook. Oh well. Last night was a pretty late one for my son’s school night.
Initially I was a little flustered when I read the email. Then I got to a place wherein I didn’t have to or think it appropriate either to disclose stuff, but rather emailed a few sentences. I guess that I kinda followed suit and just did well wishes, but I also thanked her for dropping me a line and confirmed our plans. It will be weird to have a drink before if she’s dating someone, but I’m the one who wanted to be amiable, so. I can’t tell if she is or not. We should only very rarely run into each other, so I think that pleasantness is really possible. That makes me happy given where I was when we were together. I’m just simply ready to be vulnerable with a girl who is nice to me, and who I get along with most of the time.
On Saturday, I told my friend’s sister (We went to a bday party for a kid just three-years younger than my son.) about how I’ve changed during these nearly six-years. I am ready for a real connection. Passion and lust aside, I do want to seek compatible interactions. I just still am confused how you meet girls. I’m ready when I see her.
